We’ll start with Phil Booth, who spent Monday and Tuesday participating in the G-League Elite Camp, hoping to earn an invite to the NBA Combine. While he did...

Don’t worry, if 2019 taught us anything it’s that Wright’s a long ways away from that. But with nearly half the roster coming in as rookies, we’re going to see a pretty wide rotation at...
